Abstract : The purpose of CCF 33 is the preservation of a task forces' personnel strength and the welfare of soldiers through the initial and subsequent treatment of injured and wounded soldiers, the quick evacuation of soldiers to the appropriate level of medical treatment for wounds and injuries, and the rapid return of soldiers to duty. The outcomes include: (1) The casualty treatment and evacuation plan supports the overall maneuver plan and the commander's intent. Medical assets are deployed and weighted in relation to where, when, and how many casualties are estimated to occur. (2) Treatment of casualties is continuous as permitted by the mission and conditions. Casualties receive lifesaving care or treatment at the earliest opportunity so as to prevent further injury. (3) Casualty evacuation to the echelon is as timely and efficient as allowed by mission. Loss of life or limb is not caused by undue delay of evacuation. Evacuation priority is based upon the nature of the wounds or injuries of the patient.
